Abstract

Interest in sustainable food systems is not a passing fad. There is extensive evidence from many disciplines, including nutrition, which calls for a collaborative approach to advancing sustainable food systems policies and practices. Taking a systems approach provides a powerful professional and ethical framework from which to operate. The informed food and nutrition professional will be poised to provide the leadership and vision needed to promote food system sustainability. Given the availability and access to a consistent supply of healthy food and clean water are essential for human survival, these professionals have an incredible opportunity and obligation to shape the health and well-being of future generations.
